later on and specifically in western and northwestern africa mauritania is generally considered by the e.u. in the less problematic state. the number of youth recruited remains very small and the attacks carried on the soil the capabilities are extremely limited and its affiliated networks are disorganized and weak today. it pursues the and imprisonment of a violent extremists as disrupting the growth of the militant movement. but like other countries are faced with a challenge of ensuring control of the borders. i mean, it shows ilana border on the 2,400 kilometers. it is even more than algeria which shares 1300 kilometers border. he. it's all forms of smuggling and also as i said, slipping in the northern mali to mauritania and he. the aggressive approach to fight the violent extremists and it's definitely more so than mali. an example because it has equipped its airports with i.t. systems. it has installed passport readers and it's about 27 posts to control its borders with help , and it has trained hundreds of the police officers. the government has also undertaken several initiatives
with asean, singapore, japan and korea. and we're also in dialogue with the eu. we have been talking about a bilateral investment treaty, but not necessarily with a due sense of urgency. for meeting since negotiations started in 2007 does not suggest a great deal of haste. much as it might surprise, we want this as much as you did because it is also of interest to us. ladies and gentlemen, important as they are, market access issues, and goods and services, and i to be seen perspective for they can be made to define narrative. why we must work to sort out these challenges, it is not in our interest to let such issues define the relationship. this is why we have proposed to create an ad hoc clearinghouse mechanism to discuss market access issues in the trade policy forum. i believe that we also need to find a new positive narrative that can bind our countries closer together. one such opportunity i feel is in the energy sector. without a shirt access to energy inputs in sufficient quantities, we will not be able to sustain our economic development. therefore, an enduring in the u.s. partner

works. now when you work on a problem like this, as we do in the u.s., perhaps not at the scale the e.u. will, we'll find out. you learn not only more things about the brain but you learn how to build better computers and circles around and all boats rise. but the one mess age i want to leave with you with is that basic research still done in universities primarily including this new world of use inspired basic research with good interaction with companies and so forth producing the independenceble feed stock for companies and especially for young entrepreneurial companies that increasingly drive innovation, products, and jobs. mr. chairman, rajing member johnson, thank you for the opportunity to be here. i'll be happy to answer any questions. >> thank you. thank you for your testimonies today. i'll recognize myself for five minutes to ask questions and mr. templeton i would like to address my first question to you. let me preface by saying this in the united states every year $400 billion is spend on research and development. about $140 billion comes from the federal government. those
u.s. emissions are actually down, i think it is 8%. eu emissions are down like 9%. but chinese emissions are up 30%. look at, look at where the coal is being burned. i think in five years india is supposed to become the second largest burner of coal right behind china. so the global picture on emissions is, if the national one wasn't enough to make you cry, i mean, just sort of think globally as sort of where we're going, you know? so, that's the crying part. and you asked me bright spots so. i mean there actually are, there actually are some, relax, i mean, the news, car standards that were just promulgated will double fuel economy by 2020 five. california is moving ahead and i think is a real bright spot. rggi is strengthening their targets. that's a bright spot. the cap-and-trade in australia looks like, i mean, who knows, another government might fall over their program here but it's a bright spot. they have got a plan. they have got a program. south korea is thinking about instituting emissions trading. china has seven sort of experiments around the country looking at emis
